Andrew Luck unsure whether he’ll be ready for training camp

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is recovering from shoulder surgery, and he’s not sure how long that recovery will take.

Luck said today that he simply doesn’t know yet whether he can run the offense when the Colts open training camp on July 29.

“To be honest, I have not thought about it,” Luck said, via Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star. “If I’m ready for it, then great. If I’m not, then that’s the way it is. I’m certainly hopeful for it. In my mind all I can do — and I truly feel this way — with this rehab, with my shoulder, I can’t look five months down the road, three months down the road, a week down the road. To me it’s about the next rehab session, the next day. That’s where my focus is and that’s where I think it needs to be to truly get back to 100 percent.”

That’s not exactly the most confidence-inspiring quote from Luck, but the Colts want to be cautious. They’ll take their time about getting him back on the field, and that may mean having him on the sideline when training camp opens.

  1. He has taken a lot of beating, I wouldn’t be shocked if he calls it a career.

  2. He needs to get out of Indy at the first chance, regardless if it costs him his money because staying there is costing him his health and career.

    The Colts are paying for their sins. He will never sniff another AFC Finalist banner in his career.

    It depends. He is indeed very talented. Nit a bust, just a guy who doesnt get good support. If he escapes Indy he could very well fare better in another franchise.

    Wow look at all the patsie trolls. They spend more time on Colts articles than theirs. #getalifealready

    Not really, supporters of other teams know the situation in Indy too. Even some Indy fans are realistic. No one here has made a statement about Luck’s situation thats not correct. Also, you gotta think the Pats fans do not spend all that much time worrying about the Colts. But it might be hard for a Colt fan to see that if they are always fixated on the Pats and seeing them in every shadow.

  5. Speaking objectively, since the Colts are no threat to the Pats; was Luck really worth it?Tank a season, blow too much on the cap to get enough help, still makes terrible decisions, etc. I don’t think he’s a top 10 QB.

    Doesn’t need camp he is the best quarterback

    Luck has a lot of talent. It is just too bad that he is squandering his potential playing for the softest team in the league. He should have rejected his contract offer from the Colts and hit the open market. More than likely Elway would have signed him to a contract making the Broncos immidiate and perrenial contenders

    Not real familiar with the franchise tag, are ya…..

  8. As a pats fan, I feel bad for luck. I was fortunate enough to meet him at the pro bowl practice on hickam AFB when I was stationed In Pearl Harbor from 06-2014. Most REALISTIC new Englanders feel bad for him. Hell of a good guy, above average QB, dumpster owner, former GM, and roster. I hate to see a guys career go the way of Chad Pennington who had so much talent, and blasted with injuries.
